Advanced Puzzle: Countdown is the twelfth level in the Prismata campaign.

Setup[edit | edit source]

The player begins with 2 Walls, 6 Drone, a Blastforge, and an Animus.

The opponent begins with 4 Husks, 4 Tarsiers, and 12 Shadowfangs with 10Exhaust.

Engineer, Wall, and Rhino are available for purchase.

General Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Notice that you can build exactly 10 Rhinos and your opponent has exactly 20 units, with 1 Health each. This means that you have to build all 10 Rhinos and each has to attack twice before dying or else it's impossible to win.
  • Remember that once your Rhinos have attacked twice, they can defend too, so factor them into your calculations.
  • Don't be afraid to sack a Drone on a key turn. Each Rhino costs 5 Gold and you start the challenge with 6, so even if you lose 1, you can still build a Rhino each turn.
  • Think about your defense very carefully. You need a lot less Walls and Engineers than you think.
